Jordan said:the whole champion band of wales at 3 contests was the reason bands attended the contest!
JessopSmythe said:The "Champion Band of Wales" was never a particularly meaningful title in the first place. Since the qualifying contests were all in the south, it pretty much excluded bands from north wales. If we, as welsh banders, want to maintain a seperate championship then it must include the whole country. There are only really two ways of doing this, either base the championship on the area results or run a series of contests at venues throughout wales.
